So I raided my felt stash and 20 minutes later we have this festive little banner
This was crazy simple. I used felt sheets because I didn't want to have to measure (one cannot be bothered to measure while watching important programming like the Oscars). One sheet of each red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet provided more than enough length to swag on my mantle.
I cut each sheets into thirds (longways) using pinking shears, and then pinked the two additional straight edges
Then just ran them through the sewing machine, scrunching them to give a ruffle effect
After all of the pieces were joined and ruffled, I went back through a second time to scrunch it a little more. The banner natually twists a bit and once I had it up, I helped the twisting along to add to the ruffling effect.
Quick, easy and festive! My
